Sir Bernard Spilsbury: The Father Of Forensics Exhibition

Pathologist Sir Bernard Spilsbury was an expert witness for the prosecution in the courtroom of his day. He was impressively presented, charismatic, articulate, and ultimately persuasive to judges and juries alike. Known to many as the Father of Modern Forensic Science, he’s widely credited for making forensic science credible in the fight against crime. This exhibition in our Edwardian Police Station explores Spilsbury’s work alongside the story of forensic pathology from its largely discredited beginnings in the early 19th century, to its widespread authority today. In CSI terms, Spilsbury used cutting-edge science and pioneering techniques of the day to support the case for the prosecution.

The exhibition is open Bank Holiday weekend in May (5, 6 & 7 May) and then again from 27 May to 4 June and 26 July to 5 September 2018.
